If any organization other than the United Nations had done this it would have been mocked and ridiculed at cocktail parties up and down the eastern seaboard.

Langmuir's 2nd law seems appropriate:

Of course WUWT isn't challenging the underlying data. I suppose it's because Watts knows the data used to make the graph is accurate. The other possibility is that WUWT isn't capable of analyzing the data.
The average citizen is so incapable of understanding science...and so eager to participate in the latest apocalyptic frenzy...that the field is ripe for the PT Barnum's of the world to become super-rich.
Sadly, our governments have joined in the feeding frenzy.
It's no wonder that the NEA contributes to Democrats.
